I'm a freelance illustrator and a Kendall College of Art and Design graduate currently living in Michigan. My work ranges from rendered paintings in watercolor, to still-lifes in pastel, to film storyboards, to more comic-style illustrations in digital or traditional colors. Needless to say, my work is diverse. My intention for use of this blog is to display my artwork in a professional manner and to bring in commission-based business. Essentially, this is my online portfolio. Many illustrators are using blogs these days, and needing a presence for myself, this will hopefully work for me as well. So I encourage you to watch regularly for postings of artwork and perhaps be compelled to call on my services for a commission. Keep in mind that I work in a variety of mediums and subjects, so do not hesitate to ask for something that you might not see here. Just contact me at, my work e-mail and my Paypal account.

Read my illustration commissions post as a starting point to get an idea of the potential price range.

Great Romanian Personalities: Caragiale

Sometimes you forget how big the internet is until someone gets in touch with you from halfway across the globe. Ms. Ana Lugijana of a Romanian cartoonists association reached out and asked if I would partake in an upcoming exhibit, "Great Romanian Personalities". She gave a list of about ten individuals, but mentioned their particular interest was in having Ion Luca Caragiale and Mihai Eminescu, so I went with the former. (These three are the same man, but at different ages; the top being the youngest and the bottom being the oldest.) Though I won't have the pleasure of visiting and seeing the artwork in person, I'll receive a catalog, as will all the artists who likewise submitted work.

The cartoonists association I mentioned before has a site, which can be found here. Unfortunately, it is currently down for reconstruction.

Makiev commission

Another digitally-colored portrait I finished not so long ago, here's the Soviet assassin Makiev, an original character designed and commissioned by Matt K. I took a great deal of pleasure hammering out this one, as I find the World War II era rather interesting in of itself. For those of you familiar with Mike Mignola's Hellboy, you'll likely notice the similarity of Makiev's mask to Karl Ruprecht Kroenen's. The design of that particular accessory was indeed inspired heavily by it. On another side note, the eyes may seem off. That is due to his left eye, which is slightly clouded over.

Commander Deth commission

A little while back, I created a digitally-colored portrait of mech pilot Commander Ian Benjamin Deth, an original character designed and commissioned by Julie D. She loved it, so much so that she even had it framed, along with a print of my Fast Food Mafia piece that she purchased. Julie sent me a picture of the framed prints today, so I wanted to share it.
